When looking for solicitors in East Leake, workers who may have contracted a condition relating to working in a dusty environment often decide to consult us here at Accident Advice Helpline when they come across us on the web and see that we’re one of the leading injury claim law firms in the UK.
Gypsum particles can pose a health hazard
Because we employ 200 solicitors, each with their own area of expertise, we have an amazing depth of knowledge and experience across a whole range of workplace related injuries and occupational related-conditions.
While gypsum dust is not a particularly hazardous material, when machined particles become airborne, and if continually inhaled they could cause reactions to the lungs. They can also cause irritation to the eyes and skin.
Working in dusty environments
Factories that have dusty environments must have efficient dust extraction plant in place, and as well as informing any employees of any potential hazards they must also issue any appropriate items of PPE (personal protective equipment).
Failure to meet any of these requirements would constitute a dereliction of an employer’s duty of care to their workforce, and should an employee then become ill or develop a condition such as pneumoconiosis (dusty lung), that employee would be entitled to claim compensation.
Making the choice between solicitors in East Leake and Accident Advice Helpline
If you’ve contracted an occupational-related disease or illness for which your employer is to blame, you’re legally and morally entitled to claim compensation. If rather than just checking out solicitors in East Leake you compare a number of injury claim lawyers over the internet, and decide to run with us here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll allocate you a lawyer who has the appropriate specialist knowledge and skills to handle your claim.
The four important factors every compensation claim must have
Before any injury claim lawyer can determine whether or not your claim will “hold water,” they’ll need to establish the following factors:
- Where the blame for the injury/illness/condition lies;
- The nature and severity of the injury/illness/condition;
- Whether or not there is medical proof to substantiate the claim; and
- When the injury/illness/condition was sustained or first manifested itself.
Take the 30-second test
Potential claimants can get an indication of the legitimacy of their claim by visiting our website and making use of the compensation calculator located on the homepage. It will verify any claim in principle, and if initially deemed valid will provide you with an estimate as to how much compensation you could be awarded. The whole process takes only 30 seconds from start to finish.
